"the kind of story that excited them in 1979 was this comedy-western-romance about former rodeo champion sonny steele, hired by a cereal company to be its spokesperson. decked out in a cowboy outfit covered in lights, sonny is supposed to hawk the product during a special las vegas appearance, but when he finds out the champion horse he's riding is being drugged by the corporation, he rides off the stage and into the desert, where he plans to free the horse. hot on his trail is reporter alice "hallie" martin, who catches up with steele on the run, falls in love with him, and aids him in his mission when the evil food conglomerate comes gunning for him."

i thought he was so gorgeous...
